Very 1964 . . .

You might see more suit than man there because there's only hands and an Adam's Apple for the latter in that photo.

You wrote a book??

Their days are probably numbered, though.

I love that navy double breasted on you have in the Imperial cloth. So nice.

It's difficult to justify replacing it, but I suspect that I will find a way.

I am resourceful that way.

Yes . . .

Normally I see Steed for the New Englander, or NSM for the New Englander.

With that one I saw Steed up north and NSM down south. Not sure where the New Englander went (bobbleheady?)

His pricing starts at 2050; how does that compare to A&S or Steed? Couldn't find info on their websites.

To be honest, 2050 sounds like an excellent value (that doesn't include 5% discount for paying upfront).

A tradition has been established by English tailors going solo that their first step before going out of business is to set up a new website.

I think that it's sorta like an announcement.

I wish Mr. Matthews luck, though. He seemed to be well-liked as a front-of-house guy and it beats selling A&S hangers on eBay.

Not A&S expatriates (more like DH expatriates), but hey...

Signs of things to come -- almost directly opposite of Drake's on Cliffort Street.

A few pictures from the first fitting with Steed, shoulders are to be taken in, neck needs to be adjusted and I think some work will be done on sleeve pitch.

Looks great.

Is there any interest among West Coast members in bringing Steed out to California? I've started a thread about it here.

Thanks, it was one of the better first fittings I've had. Not to mention that they are pleasure to work with. Now to decide what to order next.
